Good Friday in Torrevieja

There are those who will tell you that once you have seen the parades on Good Friday, there is little point in going again. That is not true, each year you see something new that maybe was missed on a previous occasion. The thousands who lined the streets of Torrevieja last night were treated to a wonderful piece of pageantry. 

One thing though that was noticeable this year were the cuts in the number of sweets being handed out which in my opinion is not a bad thing. Handing out sweets may hold the attention of the children watching but it does detract somewhat from the religious message that is supposedly being conveyed.

Having said that, you will find the children handing out sweets and collecting them in my set of photos.
